Hiring Student Employees - Receive Confirmation

After the Office of Student Employment processes the Student Authorization Form, one of three emails will be sent to the employer. One will indicate that the student is eligible to work (student has worked in the past 12 months and did not need to submit additional tax paperwork); one will indicate that the student has submitted all the necessary forms (student has not worked in the past 12 months and submitted additional tax paperwork to us); and one will indicate that the student still needs to complete additional paperwork (student has not worked in the past 12 months and has not submitted additional tax paperwork).

If the employer receives the last email indicating the student has not submitted the additional tax paperwork, the student has 3 days from the day they start work to submit the forms. If the student fails to do this, they will have to stop working and will not be paid.

Please make sure you read each email to find out what status the student is at with regards to paperwork.

Once the Student Authorization Form is processed by the Office of Student Employment, it is sent to the Payroll Office for final processing. The student is officially an employee once their job is available in MaineStreet. Depending on the time of year, it may take a couple of days to have the job appear in MaineStreet.
